Asking A Stance Guy 10 Questions

Fitment Industries Author | | August 15th, 2018 |

  • - Hey guys, what's going on? It's Alex.

    - Sorry, I had the giggles.
    - I'm interviewing a child.
    Hey guys, what's goin on? it's Alex from Fitment Industries.
    - And I'm Jasper from Fitment Industries.
    - And decided today--
    and today, we decided we were gonna ask Jasper ten questions about well, static stance cars. He owns a static stance car. What do you own?
    - I, a 1997 BMW 328i.
    - So we decided we gonna title this Ten Questions for a Static Stance Guy. And Jasper doesn't know the questions which is gonna be interesting so we're gonna just start it off. Are you ready?
    - Yeah
    - Are you sure?
    - Yeah.
    - Okay, so my first is why? Why did you do it? Why--
    - Is it a crime? When people ask me--
    - [Alex] Was putting spinners on a car a crime?
    - That's baller.
    Anyway, normally when people ask me my main argument, I like to party.
    - Okay. So is that a real answer--
    - So, no.
    I would say it's cause like aesthetically, is a very good looking decision.
    - [Alex] Sure.
    - To most people.
    - [Alex] To most.
    - To most.
    Not to everyone.
    - So like most, could you give us a percentage of the car community that would be like 'I like that?' Like the only sentence is, 'I like that.' Not, 'I'm not a stance guy, but I like that.' It's just I like that.
    - I'm gonna like safely say like probably 75%. Which is a C.
    - [IAlex] Next question that we have, what are you doing with your hands?
    - Nothing.
    - Alright, it's cool.
    Where did you get the idea from?
    - To be honest, I think because of today, I'd say the internet has been like probably one of the biggest inspirations. I didn't build my car for the internet, but it was definitely a big inspiration.
    - Alright, okay, cool.
    So would you say this kind of ties in back to the first question? Would you say most people like it? Or most people hate it?
    - I dunno, that's tough.
    It all depends where you live, I guess, and like the people you hang out with. All the people I hang out with love it. I would say most people like it, in general.
    - Just generically?
    - Yeah.
    - Okay.
    - I would say so in consent--content...
    - Consensus.
    - Consensus.
    - Consensus, right.
    - Yeah, I would say most people like it only cause like a lowered car will always look good.
    - Sure.
    So what are the specs on your car?
    - The specs on my car, so the wide body kit is a 45mm over fender kit from Felony Form. But then the wheels are 17 by 10, negative three. And specifically if you wanna talk about camber as well, I just got my alignment. So I have negative 7.2 in the front and negative 6.4 in the rear.
    - [Alex] Sure.
    - Did your mom pay for your second alignment?
    - Nope.
    - Third alignment?
    - Nope.
    - First alignment?
    - Nope.
    - Damn.
    - Cause I didn't get a first alignment, remember? I couldn't get it on the rack.
    - Why couldn't they get it on the rack?
    - Cause it was too low.
    Yeah.
    - How many tires have you blown?
    - So.
    That's tough because I had a bad alignment prior.
    - Oh.
    - So, right.
    - So it has nothing to do with the stretch?
    - No.
    - Okay.
    Continue on what the issues were.
    - So first off, my tires aren't even used from my previous set up. So one of them de-laminated because it was low psi and the bead wasn't properly sitting, which is currently actually happening to another one, and the tread stopped that dumb phase. (both laughing)
    - And it's like, almost bald as well.
    - [Alex] Why?
    - But that was because it pulled to the right so hard that it was literally because of the alignment.
    - Yeah?
    - Yeah.
    And then, another one is de-beaded, but that's not like going through a new tire so I'd say two, almost.
    - Two and a half?
    - Two and a half, I'd say.
    Because I have to buy another one but that's because --
    - That's not because of the stance.
    - No.
    - Three tires, no stance?
    - No.
    - [Alex] Are you confident?
    - Yep. Very, yep.
    - [Alex] Okay, sure.
    How many Instagram followers have you gained since you made your wheels slanty?
    - A hundred.
    - Really?
    - Yeah.
    - What the?
    (Jasper laughing) I thought that was just what you did.
    - No. People just like me.
    (Alex laughing)
    - What are you doing with your nose? Alright so, originally a multi-piece wheel was meant to make wheels fit in the fender.
    - Right.
    - So why did you -- Why are you making wheels not fit?
    - They fit, no they fit.
    - Not properly.
    - They fit with work.
    - With extensive modification.
    - With extensive modification, right.
    So what was the question?
    - So you took the function out of a multi-piece wheel.
    - Right.
    - For what reason?
    - Cause multi-piece wheels are baller.
    That's pretty much my whole case.
    - Okay. Do you think stance is a fad that will die?
    - I don't think so.
    I think lowering your car and tampering your car is always gonna be a thing because you look back at old 90's race cars, even when they used E36's, Mercedes 190's, stuff like that, they still had a functional camber, but it was still camber. And the whole point of lowering your car is to lower the center of gravity and when you have a super stiff setup, it's also for no body roll. I think it'll always be a thing.
    - That's a pretty good reason, I agree with that. I don't think it's a fad at all.
    - I think it's benefiting.
    It's more extreme nowadays.
    - Yeah, okay.
    So when people tell you that your car has no function anymore because of what you did to it, what do you tell those people?
    - So it's not an M3, so that's already like the function is not the best thing you could buy for like my car. I mean it is a 2.8 so it's arguably the next best thing, as in it's probably the biggest thing you could buy that isn't an M3. And it's a 90's car, it's a 90's convertible, so it's not like it's a brand new Lamborghini that I'm slamming and getting rid of some camber.
    - So I'm just wondering how many items of Supreme do you get per one degree of camber that you achieve on your car?
    - Four.
    - Four?
    - Four.
    - Is that where you got the hat?
    - Yeah, I actually only own the hat.
    - I don't believe you.
    - No you're right, I own a shirt and a hat.
    - Okay so final question, what is your dream car?
    - My dream car? Probably a Mercedes 190 E Evo II.
    - [Alex] Okay.
    - So it's like the nice flared out boys with the big wing. I just think it's always been one of the best-looking cars and I don't know, I'd probably still slam it, but obviously because it's a dream car so whatever. And if I have enough money to buy one I don't care what people say.
    - Cool.
    - But yeah, it'd be fun I think.
